An expert diver’s watch is another essential timepeice every serious watch collector should consider having in their collection. A locking screw-down crown and case back with water-resistance to 200 meters or more is perhaps the most essential elements to consider when purchasing a true diver’s watch, since it is necessary to protect the interior movement of a fine timepiece whether you’re scaling the ocean’s floor or swimming laps in the pool.
A unidirectional rotating bezel is another aspect to consider to keep track of dive times while you’re under water. The watch material is another factor to take into consideration. Both stainless steel and titanium are impervious to salt-water and will not rust or corrode over durations of time while under water. Rubber and silicone straps are also more desirable for deep-sea diving and can also adjust for the added thickness on the wrist of wearing a wet-suit. Luminous hands and hour markers are also necessary and important for deep-sea explorations in order for you to see the time in dark conditions. A glare-proof sapphire crystal is also vital for legibility as well.
